We Broke Ground at Oakvillage and have Started Construction!

There is a lot to be excited about and celebrate these days at Oakvillage! Despite freezing cold temperatures and pouring rain, the Minto team was out at 8 am on February 24th  to celebrate a milestone at the Oakvillage site! We broke ground to mark the beginning of construction! While our hard working Minto team and trades have been on site for a little while now prepping and servicing the site we waiting until now to have our Minto Official Groundbreaking Ceremony! The Minto ceremonial shovel that has broken ground at every site in Toronto since 1986 was front and centre with Minto President, Dave Stewart, holding it on this special day.

With the ground officially broken, our construction team wasted no time and started framing the houses in block 10 this week! They have also poured foundation in blocks 10 to 14 as well as excavated Blocks 20,19 and 18. Spring is around the corner and construction will only ramp up as the warmer weather helps us to do what we love and do best- build your homes!

PDOs have been completed in Blocks 3 and 4 and these Blocks are now ready for home owners to move in to. See for yourself the photos of our walk through of Blocks 3 and 4 – the suites look stunning!

Construction Has Taken Full Speed at Minto Yorkville Park!

Minto Yorkville Park is a flurry of activity this summer! After our tremendously successful groundbreaking event, the construction team is busy in the warm, Summer weather as they continue shoring!

July 2016 fliped

Lucky for them, and our homeowners, things are rapidly moving along! The construction team is using two drill rigs at the site which allows them to work along different elevations simultaneously. The larger rig is currently working in the “dog leg” installing structural caissons. While that is happening, the smaller rig is removing the existing piles from the old parking garage which will then allow for installation of the new shoring system. Once all perimeter work is complete, the bulk of the excavation will commence.
